Guard of honour from Sampdoria for the Champions of Italy

Today, A tribute was paid by Sampdoria to Inter, the Champions of Italy. Before kick-off, Claudio Ranieri’s team, with their coach amongst them, welcomed the Nerazzurri onto the pitch in two single-file lines.

In Spain they call it the "pasillo de honor”, in English we refer to it as a Guard of Honour. It was a gesture much-appreciated by the Inter squad, who walked onto the pitch welcomed by applause and hand-shakes from their opponents. This special gesture was capped by the hug shared between Ranieri and Conte.

It was Ranieri's idea, having taken the tradition from his time in England.

“I told Quagliarella and the lads it would be good to mark the occasion the way they do in England, and they immediately agreed with me.

“This is sport. I believe sport should be in these tiny gestures, especially for a team that won with four rounds to spare. We had it at Leicester, receiving the guard of honour at Chelsea in the next game."
